's earth why a republican want the interest of of protecting him or herself to vote on taxes? why? because they make more voters angry by cutting medicare. they get means tested? give me a break. so this odd republican will raise taxes and make his somewhat better off voters pay more for healthcare? no way. so we really don't have to even get to the democrats, liberals, progressive but for the sake of candor here, why, again, on this god's earth would a good democrat want to have his or her name on vote to either cut or means test medicare so that they could then go and raise taxes? i just don't get why people keep talking about a deal. that no politician out there worried about his or her reelection or renomination would ever want to make. watch. it will take a few weeks, maybe a month or two on the truth on what i'm saying will shine through. and the sequester won't seem so bad after all. and that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us.

, what about the tax? one of the reasons for why they haven't given back this cash to investors is because they repatriated from overseas and they are going to be whacked by the tax man. >> that's right. unfortunately, a ton of this cash is overseas. now, apple has an embarrassing amount of cash, but there's a reason for that. they are going to take a tax hit if they bring it back. one thing. if they give a big special dividend, then, i think you have to say that steve jobs has left the building. he is no longer the sort of visionary that they're trying to play to. they've said that steve jobs era is certainly over and they're going to have to give cash back. i think that apple shot too far to the upside. it's going to shoot too far to the down side. but it's actually not that far off its low. i'm not certain that given that, you know, a dividend is a cash. it doesn't do anything for you. >> there's enough cash that they could give 20 bucks a share in the u.s. would imposing that tax. i think that's -- that's a lot. >> aside from the dividend, there's other things, you know, sug

of the tax increases went through and who knows exactly what congress is going to but it's probably a pretty good guess that we get to the very last minute right before the march 1st effective gate date for the spending cuts and then we get some other short-term extension to add to this made for tv drama that they seem so fond of lately and you wonder where does it get us long term and how are we able to close the gap here the congressional budget office has looked at what they consider to be the most likely outcome of the ongoing negotiations which, is a marshal implementation of these spending cuts and what you see here are two lines. the top line is out lace as a percentage of gdp or government spending as a percentage of gdp and starting today and going out through the end of 2022 and this is a forecast for the next nine years and going below that is rather a new as a% of gdp and what you take way here is what are we dealing with this budget deficit problem for some time if there is a good side to that, if you can continue to grow an economy, even with a budget deficit, what you are loo

not on a sustainable fiscal path because of the tax cuts because of the unpaid four wars because of demographics. so we need to do two things at once. we need to support the economy in the short run, investorring in infrastructure putting construction workers back to work, making america important competitive in the future and also address the problems causing a long-run deficit which are healthcare rapidly growing healthcare costs. we can improve our tax code by closing all the tax loopholes that we have. that's what the president has been focused on since frankly since i started working for him back in 09. >> rose: do you believe, are you hopeful that somehow the capitol, the dinners the lunches that are taking place that there's somehow a change in the dynamic of the conversation? >> i think the president is willing to try whatever will work. i think that it's a pretty high hurdle he's facing. i say that because the president worked awfully hard because of the congressional leadership to reach a grand bargain. we set as a goal as a number of others have to rules the deficit by 4 trillion dollars ov

defense. the majority are in favor of limited government and fewer taxes. [applause] thesked if you approved of job the president is doing. and whether or not you approve of the job republicans in congress are doing. last year, president obama had a slight bump in his popularity among this group. this year, the numbers have gone back to where they belong. i still want to meet the 2% who said they approve of us -- approve of his job. last year, the republicans in congress for a 50-50 split. the truth of the matter is that this group or this audience is not convinced the republicans in congress are doing the job they need to do. for the congressional leaders, they need to pay attention to that. then we asked some questions about the budget and how we should fix the budget mess. shock and surprise, we should accomplish it by spending cuts. surprisingly, 16% said we should raise taxes and cut spending. obviously, they did not hear coulter -- ann coulter's speech about what happened last time we agree to spending cuts. he thought we should do targeted cuts and not across the board cuts.

entitlements if republicans agree to some revenue from taxes. the other drama are these official budgets that came out. they bear no resemblance to that other drama or to reality. they're essentially campaign documents for each side. the house republicans put out theirs and the senate democrats put out theirs. if it's a family budget it's like sitting down and saying you know, i'm going to get that promotion and we're not going to spend any money when we go out for dinner. these are all hopes and wonderful things but then bump into reality. gwen: if you go on our website you'll see a feature in which john talks about the president going to capitol hill for a charm offensive in 2009. so it feels like everything old is old again. >> that's right. that's why the republicans listening to the charm offensive think we've heard this tune before. there's a lot of mistrust and that's why there's so much e. that has to be done. it's not just going to be pleasing smiles and hand shakes. and that's why everybody involved in this is pretty -- what you hear from the white house, they always say we're
